RE THE letter from the mom of a Temple student on security: It's a two-way street. Students buy just as much liquor, beer and drugs as the "locals. " They throw loud parties in residential neighborhoods, unrinate in public, etc. Temple police are on the scene before city cops and cover up what the suburban kids do. Yes, North Philly is bad, but you can get hit by a car anywhere. Violence is everywhere! All races commit crimes! You should have sent your kid somewhere in Pittsburgh.

Although there's little likelihood that we'll get to cast a vote for him, something about the candidacy of Sonny Bono, who wants to become the mayor of Palm Springs, Calif., has a certain appeal. Mr. Bono, who rose to stardom as an entertainer with his former wife Cher, has also been truck driver, shoe salesman, restaurateur. Now he's turned his sights toward becoming the chief executive of the wealthy desert community. The message he's taking to the voters? "I've never been qualified for anything I've done.

The first votes are in on the President's request for $100 million in aid to the contras. That the votes by House committees are along party lines is regrettable. The U.S.-sponsored war in Nicaragua is not a partisan issue; it is a matter of truth, justice and national priorities beyond party lines. Truth is no longer a criterion for the administration. In the midst of distortions and lies, there is one kernel of truth - that the Sandinista government is receiving support from the Soviet Union.

Gov. Christine Whitman: I must commend you. Asking for Col. Carl Williams' resignation as head of the New Jersey State Police seemed to be a very politically correct move. The positive reaction from minority groups confirms that. Taking into consideration your political agenda, I would imagine that what you say and do regarding this matter can and will reflect your status within the minority groups. That is very important to you, is it not? But at any time, did you or anyone from your staff bother to confirm what Col. Williams said to be true?

How I long for the days of Harry Truman! What I wouldn't give to return to yesteryear, when our leaders and our government at least pretended they were following the Constitution. Now, the government is investigating itself - again. This time, in response to the horrific tragedy in Waco. I am a baby boomer. I was part of the generation that tuned in, turned on and generally got strung out. We saw it all - civil rights, Vietnam, poverty, Watergate, assassinations. Yet, even in those changing and tragic times, we thought right would prevail.

WE DON'T suppose it's been a very good month if your name is Louise Bishop. The state representative has been near the center of two separate but equally disturbing scandals: The latest is an investigation by the Daily News into an undeveloped project in Overbrook that carries her name. The Lancaster Avenue Redevelopment Corp. was funded by state and city money - at least $2 million, some of which was arranged by Bishop - to revitalize a commercial corridor, reduce blight, build homes and create jobs, starting as far back as 2001.

If there is any journalistic justice, you had to keep turning pages to reach this story. Lots and lots of pages. Past the horse racing. Past the tire ads. All the way back to the classifieds. As in: Help wanted. Team will provide shoes, shirts, shorts, towels. If you can't make it, send someone who can. "This stinks," Sharone Wright grumbled in the aftermath of the 76ers' grim, 92-72 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday. "It's disgusting. Everybody's out there trying hard, but not hard enough.

If "Truth" wants to elicit sympathy for the journalists it portrays, then it's honest to a fault. "Truth" tells the story behind the infamous "60 Minutes II" story on the National Guard service record of then-president George W. Bush, a 2004 piece that ran in the midst of his re-election campaign. The movie is drawn from the memoir of Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett), the CBS News producer assigned to assemble a team (including Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss) to ferret out the story in Texas.

By Benjamin Zycher Economics may be the dismal science, and economists may be boring, but there really are a few eternal economic truths worthy of inscription in stone. The quantity of a good demanded declines as its price rises. Bigger economies demand more labor, that is, create more jobs. Economic distortions created by government may bestow benefits upon particular groups but, for the economy as a whole, harm the economic interests of both consumers and producers by reducing the size of the aggregate economic basket.

Stoutsburg Cemetery - located in Skillman, N.J., at the heel of the Sourland Mountains - has long served as an African American burial ground. Like many such places, it holds much unspoken history. Two trustees of the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association are unraveling those secrets - the stories behind unmarked slave graves around the cemetery - for a book to be published next year. Purchased in 1858 for people of color, Stoutsburg became the final resting place for local residents, including veterans of conflicts dating back to the American Revolution.

It's only relatively recently that Philly has been made to look cool on film. With some notable exceptions, like last year's Creed, the city has more often than not served as a nameless stand-in for crime dramas or action flicks in need of a grimy postindustrial backdrop. Name that abandoned factory or burned-out block and win a prize. But it's 2016. We're a city on the rise. So it was with much excitement and trepidation that I tuned in to watch the latest episode of the rebooted X-Files on Monday night.

Sofiya BallinĀ is an Inquirer staff writer I learned the most about black history in whispered tones while my mother braided my hair, after school when my father listened to talk radio, as my grandmother grated coconut, and at the dinner table set with shades of brown and opinion. In those moments I learned of the rise and destruction of Black Wall Street, the inhumanity of the Tuskegee Experiment, the tales of Angola's Queen Nzinga, the triumph of Queen Nanny of the Jamaican Maroons, and the Haitian revolution.

Sales and price numbers for 2015 won't be in for a while yet, but I have deemed it appropriate to share prognostications about 2016. Oh, no, another survey - this time of 2,000 people with time on their hands, conducted by the real estate search engine Trulia. (This column won't be all survey, I promise - a New Year's resolution I mean to keep.) First, Trulia says, Americans still want to own homes, despite the miserable years that began, for the Philadelphia region, at least, in the third quarter of 2007.

By Peter J. Wallison We can all agree that the financial crisis was caused by a "mortgage meltdown" mostly among subprime and other risky mortgages. But what neither The Big Short nor its greed narrative tells us is why there were so many of these mortgages in the financial system to begin with. The answer: It was not Wall Street. In June 2008, just before the crisis, more than half of all U.S. mortgages - 31 million loans - were subprime or otherwise risky. Of these, 76 percent were on the books of government agencies, primarily the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs)

LATE LAST WEEK, as darkness draped the streets of West Philadelphia, Edward Archer was caught on video walking up to a police cruiser, extending his arm, and pumping 13 bullets into the vehicle, hitting Officer Jesse Hartnett three times. The gravely wounded officer returned fire, hitting the fleeing suspect, and Archer was captured shortly thereafter. But it wasn't the shooting that shocked the city. Nor was it the irony of Archer shooting Hartnett with a police service weapon that had been stolen from an officer's home in 2013.

In the college tuition game, the sticker prices are usually fake, but the money students and families pay is real. It's also often borrowed, leading to debts that make it difficult for graduates to start a family, buy a home, or take a risk on a business or career. Because there are too many losers in this game, it's encouraging that one local college has stopped playing. By resetting its tuition from $32,620 to $18,500, dropping room and board charges from $13,400 to $11,500, and making its pricing more transparent, Rosemont College has taken a bold step that could help unravel the daunting tangle of college costs.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Wolf on Monday called the legislature's planned vote this week on his budget - one that includes tax increases to boost education funding - "a once in a generation vote. " Legislators who vote Wednesday "don't want to be on the wrong side of history," Wolf told reporters during an invitation-only news conference at his residence. "We can't afford Republicans and Democrats - we need Pennsylvanians. We need people . . . who are looking beyond narrow partisanship. " The unusual campaign-style pitch was an opening salvo in a week that could reshape or define the impasse.
